Similar to many successful ventures, Freddie Meadows is a product of the harsh Scandinavian climate and forward-thinking mindset. Embodying the modern athlete, Freddie is the newest member of the JL family. Swedes aren’t often associated with surfing, and Freddie explains that he was introduced to wave riding at a time when the Swedish surf team was compared to the Jamaican bobsled team. That didn’t stop him from, after 10 years, leaving a mark on the international competition scene before moving on, embarking on new paths. Freddie combines his love of nature with a digital nomadic lifestyle. On a daily basis, he’s running his holistic surf & yoga retreat “Getaways” in Costa Rica, while following a childhood dream; Finding world-class waves along the Scandinavian coastlines.
